I wonder if this features works with external HDD's as well. I went to my local Apple Store the other day, and the guy I spoke to didn't really know too much about Lion or Airdrop, he said that he thought it might work, but wasn't sure.

I'm looking to buy a new HDD, and if this feature works with external HDD's, I might as well buy one that works with Airdrop.

Anybody got any thoughts on that? Cheers!

AirDrop only works between Mac computers that are compatible with not only Lion, but have the compatible WiFi card to use AirDrop. With this being said, the only thing you can do when using AirDrop with another user (they too must have AirDrop open) is send them a file, and from there, they'll decide where to put that file.

I'm not sure if any of you guys have seen this but the official UK price is 20.99. Let's hope we don't have to wait much longer!

Put your cursor over any word in any app, and press that. You'll get a nice little dictionary definition without ever having opened Dictionary.app

Well wait a minute...Control+Command+D is the Dictionary pop up in Safari. Isn't there something for Dictionary in Chrome?

I have to say that installing Lion was a huge time wasting affair for me. It corrupted my Adobe Creative Suite CS3 and no solution offered worked. The wifi keeps dropping out - a common problem it would seem from other postings on the internet. My Filemaker programme crashed on opening. At times the computer speed was so slow you simply had to reboot it.

A big disappointment that almost makes Windows Vista seem acceptable by comparison.

After 2 days messing around I am now back to Snow Leopard, and that's where I'm staying until they sort out the vast problems with this new OS. I doubt I'll get my money back though!

I received an email from Apple perhaps 6 weeks ago trumpeting the imminent arrival of Lion, and stating what a fantastic new OS it was going to be.

Here's what it didn't tell you:

No more Rosetta, so my old Office for Mac 2005 would no longer work, or any other Power PC programmes. Why? There is no reason to stop this, other than built in obsolescence = greed.

My Adobe CS3 programmes played up. CS3 is fine for me, it's only a few years old and does everything I want. InDesign wouldn't print, but then I was told to remove some files, which worked. Except every time I opened Acrobat Pro, it posted a warning window that without these removed files, it wouldn't function properly. Upgrade to CS5.5: 900+. No thank you.

My Filemaker Pro 8.5 crashed repeatedly. Some plonk on this forum said that I should upgrade to the latest version. Why should I have to cough up nearly 200 to upgrade my database when it performed perfectly well as it was under Snow Leopard?

Wi fi problems galore.

Markedly slower processing speeds (my iMac is only 2 years old).

So what does Lion offer? Fancy graphics. Big deal. Loss of functionality of older programmes. An opportunity to spend money unnecessarily just to satisfy this new OS. I think it is pretty poor customer service and the designers should have incorporated continuing service to us Mac users who are perfectly happy with our existing products.

I've now erased it and restored Snow Leopard. 2 days out of my life that would have been better spent focussing on running my business.

0/10.

/Library/Printers/PPDs/contents/Resources/Zh_CN.lproj
/Library/Printers/PPDs/contents/Resources/Ja.lproj
/Library/Printers/PPDs/contents/Resources/ko.lproj
/Library/Printers/PPDs/contents/Resources/Zh_TW.lproj

Apple just addressed the WiFi issues with Lion in the 10.7.1 update. Maybe you should've waited a couple more days.

FileMaker has kept known issues with Lion documented for some time now, and they have stated that only version 11 will be supported to work with Lion going forward. Since you're a couple versions behind on Adobe CS, I'm guessing that's probably the case with this program too. You might want to read up on the apps you use before a major OS upgrade next time. It's not as if you needed Lion.
Sorry, but Lion was promoted to me by email from Apple claiming it was fab. No mention of having to research whether or not my programmes that worked happily under Snow Leopard would still function. And why don't they? That could have been built into Lion. I was encouraged to install it and I did. And if you really think for others it is working well, I suggest you get out there on the net and peruse the volumes of criticism about this shoddy product.
